I'm very happy to report that my health has improved markedly with kefir. I no longer have continuous minor skin infections on my scalp and around my waist. The absence of these, having had them for more than thirty years, within a week of starting kefir, was quite startling. Additionally, I have more energy than before. I'm also fairly sure that this winter's break in my 5 year run of chest infections leading sometimes to walking pneumonia is down to kefir. So, thank you, Patricia Robertson, for helping me to feel confident that through my own efforts at home, I can improve my health and that of my family, even at 50!
I've been on the Raw Vegan Food path, on and off for a while now...
And whilst I noticed afew of the comments, about how easily it is available in the shops, yes it is, but unless you're made of money it's very difficult to eat this way long-term, Unless you start at home! ~I don't know about you, but it isn't cheap buying these kinds of products at health food stores, secondly the product isn't nearly as refreshing or staisfying as making it yourself!
I noticed since the summer of 2011, that the more cultured foods, yogurts, and kefirs I consumed on a regular basis, my energy really did go through the roof, and I felt allot more supple and balanced in the overall health arena, that I didn't necessarily really feel was there before, so I've definitely been looking at more ways to top-up! lol
I used to enjoy the occasional bowl of 'ice-cream', and a 'lollypop' here 'n' there, but noticed I would get a thrush like coating on my tongue, (I know yuk right?), and was later told by a friend it was an imbalance of the Candida albicans, a direct result of too much processed sugar entering the body, So I must have been very sensitive to it.
So that was mainly my reason for picking up this little unassuming guide, and see if I could add to my already growing library (and health). I found the readability good, its ease of use, and actual recipes to be quite helpful. I especially liked the way the author so honestly talked about 'pasteurization', that in some cases, kills 99.9999% of viable micro-organisms so necessary for healthy digestion.
I really also Loved! by the way, the story the author tells us about; how Kefir truly came to be about, and was really interesting to say the least! I would have had, No Idea about that, had I not read it here in this book!
I loved the recipe for 'Coconut Milk Kefir', it turned out Great! on only my first try! ~it was quite easy to follow the authors well-thought-out instructions, and most of the ingredients can just as easily be found in your local supermarkets or grocery stores. Believe it or not, there's actually something in this book that is sooo Hard to find in other books of this nature, and that is the: "Kefir Troublshooting" Section?? LOL! Yes, there's actually a section which holds you by the hands if you find yourself crying over 'spilt milk', and believe me ! it does happen, it takes a few tries for Most people to get the delicate balance Right! the first time, though I was lucky, and pretty much knew what I was doing, but for any one else just starting-out, this section proves invaluable to anyone looking to begin hand-making cultured Kefir's at home.
The Recipes Are Also Pretty Good; So Far I've tried The 'Kream Soda', and the 'Cranberry Kefir', after making my Original batch, the Results were quite pleasing, and you can Vary the amount of 'Tang' you're after. Yum!
This is definitely a comprehensive, yet simple, and easy to follow 'A-Z' Guide on starting your very-own 'Kefir Cocktail Center' at Home, Everyone's Gonna Want One! Thoroughly Recommended!
Pros: Very Easy To Follow Instructions, and Great Recipes!
Cons: Maybe Too Much Choice! LOL! ~You'll have to Decide on Which Flavor You MOST Desire!
♥Many Thanks to The Author♥
~I'll definitely be checking-out more of these delicious recipes in the days and weeks to follow, there's definitely lots in there!
I knew nothing about kefir when I started. I loved the history of kefir too. Patricia Robertson also presents a very good argument for why we should all drink more kefir.
It was also interesting to read the entire book. The recipes are clear and easy to understand. The only thing I wish she had included was a page on sources for the kefir grains and equipment that may be desired. Even so, this is definitely a 5 Star book.
